What do I have to say about this... SOPA... get over yourself.. Find something better to do with your time besides taking away our rights. If this law gets passed... I might to something very... very rash...
It turns out they can do anything they want that is or could be hosting copy-right infringement in the future, so they can pretty much delete anything. They even have agreements with some sites that they can delete anything without reason, really. xD
But when you think of it.. nothing is original any more. What you thought of, other people have thought the same thing so there is really no need to have a bitch fit over it.. stupid goverment.. what are we? the new China?
I don’t know much about the bill yet but on the basic sum of it I know its wrong. It says so in the U.S. Constitution that the government can not censor the media, and today that very well includes the internet.
In fact in I Amendment it clearly says and I will quote it 'no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances' In this amendment alone we should find protection for we are not spreading lies or gathering in violence (and speech include all forms of expression including art).
Ok before this rant gets any longer. I just took and passed Civics and Economy in High School I know my rights and will not have them token away. This government is by the people for the people. If this was somehow to pass anyone could take it to the supreme court. Its not right and goes against what our founding fathers believed in.
I support everyone against this. If I can go to a protest I will but since I may not be able to -very small town. I will tell everyone I know to spread the message.
Sorry for the rant I know it doesnt help anything.
thier takeing away our F**** CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS!!!!!! THEY ARNT FAIR!!!! If they pass this i might kill them then myself those political Ba**** shouldnt have the power to rule our lives if this bill passes
I KNOW the American government is INSANE!!!! there is a snowballs chance in hell that they can actually find and destroy ALL illegal websights. i do like the fact that they will get rid of a fair number of those websights but giveing them unlimited power over the internet is insane, and the internet is global so they can even shut down sites in Aus too and even china if they wanted any where!!!!! its like hellow to the DICTATORS of the CYBERSPACE!!!!
And, hell they go along saying "We're nothing like China, we've got free speech and uncensored internet" SOPA will just make them exactly like China with the internet, closer to taking away free speech.
